Yeah...I can see someone out there defending something like that. Even as a prequel defender for the most part, I couldn't take BS like that. I remember back in my SW fan fiction days, reading a story where the Force revived an Episode 3 era Anakin during Luke's middle aged days because of a rise of the Sith or something, and despite being well written, any justification like this to bring back a charcter completely established dead I feel is stupid. And I'm not a fan of the clone idea either, because if it is an Anakin clone, it IS NOT Anakin (it might be Annaakin though
), and its a cheap way out.
Anikan needs to stay dead. His sacrifice is the climax of ROTJ. Its a bit less dramatic and climactic if he pops up alive again. As a force ghost I can handle that, but that would mean more Hayden and Id rather not taint the new trilogy or the future franchise with that.
